Why You Should Write a Book

I am sure I’m not the only one who has heard, “You ought to write a book.”  The thing is, should you really? Most of the time I’d say yes, you should.

To start with, we all have something that makes us unique, and writing a book is a good way to share that with others.  We’re shaped by where we grew up, who was around us, things we learned.  All of that adds up to an interesting mix and preserving it is a way of teaching others.  Think about reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House” series – she wrote what she knew and it preserved a way of life many of us would never otherwise know.

Next, this is a great time to write a book.  You can use software to help you and print it yourself or with the help of one of the many self-publishing firms.  You don’t need to find an agent, wait for an editor to read through your manuscript, or spend a fortune to get it done.

Finally, you should write a book just to have written one.  What a great feeling of accomplishment you’ll have once it’s done, and you won’t look back and say, “I wish I’d done it.”  You can do it, and this is a great time for you to write a book!
